New concept for a co-directional polarization insensitive SOA-based wavelength converter

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

VPI-simulation of a new all-optical wavelength converter is presented. It is based on interferometric effects in two Mach-Zehnder interferometers (MZI), parallel connected by polarization components (PCs). The PCs provide filtering between probe and signal wavelengths, and polarization-insensitive operation. Different efficiency values for PCs are supposed. Simulation shows wide operational range (10 dB) for the input power. Results obtained are also suitable for cascading these devices in optical networks (extinction ratio >10 dB, isolation >20 dB).
